    Default Maximum Carnage Snes limited edition

    my "wonderfull" roomate had just asked me a question about whether galvatron ever turned back into megatron, and I decided to dig out my box of transformer comic books to skool him on megatron/galvatron.

    I was surprised to find some neat things in my tf comic box that I totally forgot about.

    amoung the stuff in there was the large boxes for bomberman and earthbound (omg complete!!) but I also found my old limited edition maximum carnage box set, and I thought i'd share. i've never seen anyone mention this before so again heres some pictures:
    (insanedavid plase avert your eyes as this may be painfull to you;-))




    and the inside of the box:

    <img src ="http://www.green-ranger.com/nes/finds/maxcarnageinside.jpg">

    and I swear nowherre in this post will I asked the age old question DURRRRRRR HOW MUCH WORTH IS THIS CAN I GET LOTS ON EGAY FOR IT?!!!1111ONE111

    Just thought i'd share.

    it appears to be limited to sets of 5000 as well.

    Wow, very cool. I've never seen or heard of one before. Is there only the game, outer box, certificate and that book? Also, what exactly is in the book?

    The book is the first few issues of the maximum carnage comic that the game was based on.

    (edit)
    theres also 3 pins of spidey venom and carnage, they didn't come out so well in the pic though.

    There's a guy over in Britain on evilBay. He has a store and sells rare stuff; his ID is dojar or dozar.. something like that. Anyway.. he had a a sealed NTSC set like this and as I recall a few weeks ago it was still available at a price of somewhere between $200 to $300 as I remember. I would have BIN'ed if I had that kind of money to spend on one game.. I thought it was worth it. Haven't seen it lately.. but I'll look. Yours and his are the only I've ever seen. Odd how rare and valuable especially considering loose copies of MC gor for next to nothing on eB.

    It's because loose copies probably come from the standard version.

    Found the guy! (it took some time because he is currently "inactive").

    eBay iD is dojar and his store is called "dojars Rare Sega Console Games".

    He currently has no items for sale in his store; but he had a crapload a few weeks ago.. Power Seller.

    You might want to IM him for more info on this. As I recall.. isn't this listed in the guide also? I swear I saw it in the online one somewhere.

    nope, in the comic book they were different entitities...kinda

    the comic galvatron is a time traveler from an alternate future (the movie didn't happen in the comic)

    its very confusing ;-)

    ... I thought there was only a limited edition release on the Genesis, not the SNES. Wow. I mean, a while back someone posted an auction on the Everything eBay forum, and the case was different. I don't think it was cardboard (yours looks like that). Of course, it was the Genesis version.

    You'd think that Marvel would bundle the entire Maximum Carnage storyline in there. Eh. If only the story didn't suck so much...

    Hm, funny that you mention this, because I found all of my Maximum Carnage comics in the back of my Transformers comic longbox last summer.

    Anyways, nice find.

    spoon won that auction, and i've had the privilege of seeing his... it's really beautiful. presented just like the snes one there, but with a genesis cart. i don't think it had the normal retail box though. i think he paid around $100 for his genesis one...

    This has come up a couple of times in the past if anyone wants to search the archives.
    From what I remember, there were 5000 copies of both the SNES & Genesis versions made, and that they were sold via QVC or some similar shopping channel. I don't know if this was the only way they were sold, or if this was just a way of liquidating excess copies.

    I'd be interested in seeing any evidence that the box is different to the standard one - I was under the impression that they were the same.

    And I certainly wouldn't pay the kind of prices dojar was asking for his - he bought it through eBay for about $30, then stuck it straight back up for sale at $150. He's well known for having some truly awesome stuff, but overcharges for almost all of it.

    I'm with a few others on here not knowing of any such release, but I'm not suprised due to my large lack in knowledge of special edition releases and more uncommon titles. Since I didn't grow up surrounded by many video games, magazines, and watching tv shows with commercials aimed towards selling games there is a gap in product knowledge that I hope will slowly close up due to being in such communities as this one.

    But once again, that's a REALLY nice collectors edition of the game. I really love the case that holds it all in and the layout of the inside. I don't blame you to be pissy about "HOW MUCH IS THIS WORTH" garbage because personally I'd hang onto that the longest I could.

    It was definatly a qvc exclusive, I remeber watching the "sale" for it and begging my mom to let me get it back then (didn't have a credit card at the time) it didn't sell out..so i've always bee curious to how many of those 5000 actually got sold and what happened to the rest, i'm unsure if the game is 100% identical to the relased box (I should try to get a release copy to see)

    If you can post a scan/pic of the front & back cover, I'm sure someone else will have the standard version for comparison.

    Well, the box looks the same, at least...
